Hello everyone out there in the blog-o-sphere! My name is Sarah Bailey and this will be my first summer working as a Senior Marine Educator for Save the Harbor/Save the Bay and I am just bubbling with excitement! (I promise I will make a conscious effort to not end all of my sentences with exclamation points) My interest in the ocean was sparked by spending my summers on the shore of Buzzards Bay fishing, lobstering, letting no rock go unturned, and netting tiny minnows and eels. My original professional aspirations were to become a full time mermaid but I had to reluctantly accept that was highly unlikely (I may or may not still be holding out hope), so I settled for the next best thing and decided to become a Marine Biologist and Educator.
See you on the beach, an island, a dock - or in the cool clean water of Boston Harbor soon!
My interests include SCUBA diving, spear fishing, and cooking; my dislikes include mushrooms and bad reality television. My goal for this summer is ignite the spark in at least one kid so that upon leaving our activity, whether its tide-pooling, lobstering, fishing or any other incredible experience that is offered this summer, that she or he is inspired to continue to learn about the ocean and work toward continuing the effort to conserve it by sharing their knowledge with friends.
